  • No, if I were close to my mailman and had daily talks to him or he went out of his way I would but mine barely speaks... and they make pretty good money so no, I don't.

  • Yes I even tip the trashmen at Christmas. I usually get the mail lady a gift card from me and the surrounding neighbors. There are only 4 houses on our little street, and now only 3 people (older man died last year). We put in whatever we can afford. I put in around $20-$40 depending on what we can spare. She usually ends up with around $75. I also make homemade cookies and I put that wrapped in seran wrap and the gift card in the mailbox. The trash guys I give them $15 each and some cookies.

  • No we are in an apartment so we don't know ours. Once I live in a house I am looking forward to it!

  • No. These people get paid and I don't even know what our mailman looks like! Why should I give him a tip? Waiters/waitresses are different - they're doing something more personal and fulfilling our requests. Why is it that suddenly EVERYONE is to be tipped?

  • It isnt all of a sudden. Anyone whose ever lived in a house knows its the way it is. They are providing a service for you.
